Solar Energy Saves The Environment And Wallet Of The Landlord


With the use of solar energy is not only the climate but also the wallet help are many modern homes equipped with solar panels and gradually. This is his reason and his permission, taking into account the increases of in energy prices for fossil fuels, as well as the increasing environmental pollution of in recent years. A real estate usually without further use of conventional energy sources over several days can be provide with a sufficient number of solar collectors. What is the term of photovoltaics nowadays? The term of photovoltaic means all measures of modern solar energy. This is one of the regenerative so renewable forms of energy and differs so significantly from the always diminishing fossil fuels such as oil, natural gas and coal.

Today, solar energy is a technology of the future, already used to a small extent by some individuals and businesses. Through the installation of solar panels on the roof or exterior walls a House, solar energy can be captured and harnessed. Using a photovoltaic system, solar energy is stored and delivered on demand on the real estate. Why choose photovoltaic? Because the CO2 emissions from the production of solar energy is minimal and thus the global CO2 emissions can be reduced, the installation of a photovoltaic system in the area of private real estate generally subject to a financial support from the State. The KfW bank group has made the conversion to eco-friendly solar energy by providing financial incentives such as special loans. Generally, solar energy is a free common knowledge. For this reason, the energy cost of solar energy much lower than conventional energy sources are.

Maintenance of the photovoltaic system apply only to a small degree. It is recommended for every homeowner to consider the gradual conversion to solar energy. Environmental analyses covering the essential influencing factors allow an accurate Installing a solar system on the roof of the House expects balance sheet, whether or not and in what period of time pays for itself. Final conclusion with the installation of a photovoltaic system looks forward to the homeowners in the long term a relaxed financial future with regard to the ongoing energy costs of own real estate. Also, a big favor can be proved with the conversion to low-cost solar energy of the environment. Can March

Climate change: Background information on the causes, as well as strategies to stop climate change, you get the project days of the ‘Bavarian Climate Alliance’, 26-28 November 2010, Museum man and nature of flood and flooding and drought disasters: we have arrived in the middle of the climate change. “The Bavarian State Government has responded and since 2004 with now 14 allies the Bavarian Climate Alliance” launched. Now, a strong network is from the individual threads. The Alliance partners with your climate projects is present in a first joint public event. On the weekend of 26-28 November 2010, Landesverband Bayern in the Orangery Hall, Schloss Nymphenburg, Munich, the VBIO organized a free exhibition about the current projects of the “Bavarian Climate Alliance” allies. A stand of the regional association for bird protection, the Evangelical Lutheran Church in Bavaria, the Deutsche Rentenversicherung in southern Bavaria, the Bavarian will be the Bavarian Chamber of architects, the Association of German architects, Participate in the State Ministry of health and environment, the Bavarian State Ministry of nutrition, agriculture and forestry, the State Office for environment, as well as the Association for biology, life sciences and Biomedicine, Landesverband Bayern. The topics are as diverse as the Climate Alliance partners, the climate is so”lit from a wide variety of pages. Causes and effects of climate change, its own energy consumption, as well as ways to reduce it, climate-friendly diet and mobility are brought closer to the citizens in the exhibition and the lectures.

Various with Mach actions are offered to all ages. Friday, 10:00 opening of the event with a press conference by the Bavarian State Ministry of the environment and health. “Parallel to the exhibition lectures on the topic of biology and climate change are found in the Museum on Saturday” and on Sunday on the topic of energy efficiency “instead. Here the following partners are involved: Bavarian Chamber of architects, national for birds, VBIO Landesverband Bayern, Association of German carriers, Bavarian State Ministry for environment and health, and the Bavarian State Office for environment. “Special highlight is the Panel discussion from 14: 00 until 16:00 with the theme: how much simplicity can we afford”.

Or better: A high-efficiency pump is installed. Electronically controlled heating pump controls the performance depending on the needs of self-employed. This significantly reduces electricity costs because the heating pump works so most of the time when the thermostats are closed in the partial-load range. Owners recognize these models, that the power (P1) on the front with a “by to” span is specified. For example, 30 to 80 watts. High-efficiency pump this pump is the best solution, because it has an optimized engine.

Also it is electronically controlled and adjusts their performance to the real needs. The power consumption is only six to 30 watts. This puts it at an average annual consumption of about 75 kWh and electricity costs by only 20 euro per year. A high-efficiency pump cost including installation between 350 and 400 euros. The exchange of the heating pump is particularly worthwhile when he with a heating optimization through a hydraulic leveling is combined. Then, each year more 110 euro can be save on heating costs, because all radiator fed with heat evenly and energy-saving in addition to the cost of electricity be. Note to editors: all calculation examples is an electricity price of 0.26 euro/kWh basis. The adopted the pump running time is 6,000 operating hours per year.

“Co2online and my heating more my heating can more” is a campaign of the non-profit consultancy co2online. The nationwide campaign is funded by the Federal Ministry of environment in the framework of the national climate protection initiative and supported by the Consumer Council energy advice. The Ostfalia University of applied sciences is a scientific partner. Together with a cross-industry network with partners from associations, business and trade media are consumers of personal efficiency potential hydraulic leveling itself in terms of informed and motivated to become active.
